On Monday, Iowa state election officials certified the razor-thin 6-vote margin favoring Republican House candidate Mariannette Miller-Meeks over Democratic rival Rita Hart, following a recount in Iowa’s 2nd District.
The state canvassing board met to finalize the results of the Iowa races, including the 2nd District, in which over 394,400 ballots were cast.
